Blessings Galore

It seems at the moment I am being blessed from many directions and I am so thankful.
I have not one but "two" projects in the latest Country Threads Magazine along with a profile article and both projects became cover girls. YAY!  So if you think you would like to get to know me a little better ( like you don't already) you can read about it in this issue.
To those of you who were very interested in "My Country Garden" you will be happy to know it is one of the projects featured.
As if that wasn't enough it appears lots of you liked "Christmas Memories" and had to have it. I loved the ad in Homespun magazine and so did you....thank you.
On the sewing front I have been chilling out with a little red work.
So sorry about the "non-ironed" look they are sporting. As is the next little sneaky peek that you shall have to wait for later in the year. Can you tell I was rushing.
I also got back to Yoga yesterday another YAY! I am not sure what to make of the fact No 1 husband enquired "When are you going back to Yoga???"  Maybe I am a nicer person to be around when I commit to my practice??? Speaking of which I was also downright impressed with myself that I got up early this morning and did my meditation and hit the mat. I have signed up for a 21 day meditation challenge hosted by Deepak Chopra and Oprah you can read about it here. So wish me luck. I have felt a little out of sync lately hence falling over, feeling unwell and other little bits and pieces and I have not been on my mat as much as I would have liked so I am sure this will be the little rebalancing kindness that will help.
I wish you all a wonderful day.
Blessings Michelle xxx
